MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, .JANUARY 19 HI 1937 THREE f{ Proper Grooming as an Aid to Girth Control F EW of us can avoir! eventually a tendency to become slightly corpulent. The penalty of modern life, what with little walking, much eating and a convivial cup or two, is an extra few inches at the waist. More than usual care must be given to your diet and your appearance, if you're that way already. The radio listener above has concealed his fleshiness with well-selected .apparel. We imagine if he looked down, 'we'd discover a suspicion' of a "double chin. -:v" American inventive genius comes through to eliminate the cause of much early morning unpleasantness and profanity. Sanforizing lias made it possible to buy a shirt to your exact size and have it fit around the neck no matter how many journeys it has made to the laundry. Though your vanity may not demand a suppressed waistline, these popular "girth-guarders" are acclaimed by every man as an aid to physical well-being for every day and every sport. _, 11 Vests, the least of the component parts of a suit, are oflen carelessly fitted, -spoiling tliu rest of the outfit. Lastex backs are helpful in eliminating the uncomfortable back-strap, and assure a snug, well-fitted vest. Another bit of Yankee ingenuity is the fused collar that gives all the much desired effect of starched matching collars . . . and is a cinch to launder. sho Bu A contribution to neatness is the talon' closure used on trousers. Men who are a bit corpulent are particularly enthusiastic about this tailoring improvement. ESQUIRE wilt answer all questions on men's fashions. Write MEN'S FASHION DEPARTMENT, THE MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE and enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope for reply. IMPORTANT NOTE: 25c brings you "Esquire's Etiquette of Color," a large-sized four-page folder in full color embracing 32 suggestions for effective combinations in colors and patterns for the complete ensemble. TOWNSEND PLAN IS GIVEN TEST First Man to Receive $200 Budgets Spending of His-Wealth. CHELAN, Wash., (/P) -- Jubilantly shouting, "mother, we're rich!" the first man in the nation to receive $200 under the Townsend old age pension plan budgeted Tuesday the spending o£ S19G during the next 23 days. C. C. Fleming, 63, father of live children and grandfather of nine, won the $200 prize by popular vote at a Saturday night dance in this apple community of 1,400 residents. "That's the most money dad has had at any one time in 15 years," beamed Clayton Fleming, 35, eldest son of the unemployed apple orchard worker. Wreathed in Smiles. The aged Fleming, wreathed in smiles, spent $4 within 12 hours. He contributed the first of the 200 crisp £1 bills to (he orchestra expenses for the dance which turned fortune Jiis way. Then he paid Mrs. E. D. Smith, president of the Chelan Townsend club, $3 dues for himself and his 58 year old- wife. What will, he do with the remainder'? "That won't be hard to figure out," responded the man who said he had faced the prospect of winter "on relief." He budgeted this way: Groceries $50; house rent for winter S20; fuel $11; light bill $15; medical examination for dentistry $60; · clothing for himself and wife, ?40. Adds to S19G. "That adds to $196, does it?" he asked. "That's right then." Isom Lamb, * Chelan county' Townsend supervisor, donated the $200 for test of the Townsend plan. Mayor W. T. Price said all merchants would co-operate in the plan, assessing themselves a 2 per cent transacation tax for each dealing with one of the marked bills. Supervisor Lamb hoped the transaction tax would raise sufficient money to award another $200 next month. If not, he said he had guaranteed 51,000 more to continue the experiment for another five months. President's Mother Entertained by Singers Ambling Thry Apparently well pleased with the sitiKinfr of a group from Hampton school, Negro educational institution, who entertained her in her New York home, IMrs. Sara Delano Roosevelt, mother of the president, claps her hands In approval. W. .T. Schlcfflcin, trustee of the school, Is equally pleased. Stakeholder for Bet on Wilson-KraseheJ Contest for Governor Told Not to Pay Off Yet. Additional $350,000 Made Available for Feed Loans in Iowa DES MOINES, (IP)--Gov. Nelson G. Kraschel has received notice from Henry A. Wallace, secretary of agriculture, that the federal government has made available an additional $350,000 for feed loans to Iowa farmers in the drought area. The loans will be made, Kraschel said, without some restrictions previously imposed on rehabilitation loans. Wallace's action was in response to a request from the governor, he stated. Wallace's message said the agriculture dopnj-lment "realizes" the amount was insufficient to meet the needs of drought county farmers, but added "we hope within the next week or 10 clays to provide additional" funds. By GEOUGE MILLS Iowa Daily Tress Photo Pockets bulged by an extra $100, a stakeholder came to DCS Moincs the other day to find out what was what on the chances of George Wilson contesting Governor Kras- chcl's election. Phoning from a democratic state department, the stakeholder complained to Wilson, "I'm getting tired* of the responsibility of holding Sino in a Kraschcl-Wilson bet. Shall I pay off the Kraschel backer'!" Tradition docs not record (lie exacting words of Wilson's answer. But the substance of the republican candidate's advice was, "Keep the money in your pockel a while longer." * * * G. O. F. WRATH Many a gory legislative battle has been fought in Iowa over the question of county governments helping the treasuries of farm bureau units with mandatory appro priations. Republican wrath of an un Icnown quantity, already cropping out though the session is young makes it certain that the conflic this, time will be no pansy party Some republican legislators, recalling last November's whipping arc charging that the farm bureai took nn active! political part in the last presidential campaign. , Since the republicans rule the senate and hold half the strcnall o[ Hie house this frame of mind justified or not, will play an important p a r t in settling the perennial farm organization question fo another two years. Lookingbill Redrafts Deficiency Judgment Bill for Legislature DES MOINES, (/P)--Representative C. E. Lookingbill, .republican of Nevada, said Tuesday he was completing a new draft of his revised deficiency judgment bill for presentation to the slate legislature. Unlike his deficiency judgment bills defeated in the last two legislative sessions, I_.ookingbill's new bill in effect will create a moratorium on deficiency j u d g m e n t s instead of seeking to outlaw them enlirely. The new d r a f t would prohibit immediate execution of deficiency judgments and give the property nwncr a year's redemption period. During this period of Brace, the property, under court order, would be in receivership, witli provisions for payments of the rents, profits and taxes. Death Sentence of Man Who Survived LIQUOR MORTAR , Deep in the recesses of demo cratic councils, they're weighing pretty seriously the idea of spending liquor profits to build a state office building. Since the state earns nca,rly SI, 200,000 on liquor, proponents o the idea say two or three years o highball earnings would financ such a structure, Prime advantages: Saving o 375,000 a year rent paid for slat office space in private buildings convenient location of all orpha offices in one building. Prime dif ficulty: Getting the financiers t take a chance on the legislatur keeping its h a n d s off the liquo setup for Ihc necessary profi earning period. K N E E DEEP Democrats taught the rcpubli cans a lesson on the care and feeding of a hard won convert uring the spoakcrship t i f f in the owa house. Gleeful observers still arc talk- ig about the way Bolter Bclt- lan, the republican who broke parly lie by voting fnr a emocrnlc speaker, went to lunch oforc 'the spcnkcrship vote. Bellman was knee deep in dcm- crats as he went to the cloak oom for his coat and hat. And flying phalanx look the prcci- us vote out the door, easily vorsling two republican Icgisla- ors who wanted to take Bellman ut for bread and butter and itlle forcible conversion. GRAY HAIR SPROUTS At that, many a gray hail %prouted in · democratic thatches, Before the Bellman vote was recorded in the spcakcrship fight Similarly, sighs oE relief followed the announcement of the 55-53 victory for democrat La Mar Foster. Chief worry was the nomina tion of Dewey Goode of Bloom field as a republican candidate Democrats feared with some rca son Bellman might decide to vot for Dcwey. The Goodc candidacy was not followed up, however and Bellman never did get : chance to express his opinion on t h a t subject. At the height of the- excile- ncnt, a telegram from a Farmers Union friend was thrust i n l r Bellman's hand. It read, "Congvat ilations to Foster. Keep going Bellman." And Bellman kept 01 going. PREMEDITATED I n c i d e n t a l l y , there was nothin liisty about Beltman's decision ti vote for Foster. Immediately nftc his election last November, thi republican representative i.s re ported to have volunteered to ; democratic leader that he wa ready and w i l l i n g to vote for candidate of the Foster or Ric type. WILSON GAIN Official news is lacking, but re ports indicate Ihc republicans be lieve their "off the record" counts for governor have yiclde a very u n o f f i c i a l gain of 1,7(1 vols for Wilson.- Twenty countic have been checked in variov u"'ys, Die votes for governor be ing counted when ballot bnxe were opened in local contest Nine more counties are bcin checked on the governor vote tli week as ballots nre being re counted in ajne contested race for scats in the Iowa house.
